The FUN CPR Competition is ON! Steven Pearce, CEO of Surf Life Savings was the clear favorite having won the CPR competition last year. James Griffins representing Minister of Heath Brad Hazzard’s office had a lot of pressure on as Mr. Brad Hazzard finished close second last year to Steven Pearce.
The result was an EQUAL finish for the four-participants including Max from Heart Safe Australia and Captain Kindness. NEVER before has a 4-way tie happened in our fun competition!
